in the city could be classified as a form of domestic terrorism. >> police say it's also possible the attorney who shares the office, michael thompson, could have been the target. both men are high profile figures in the community, which is why police say they're asking for help from the fbi. investigators say surveillance footage from cameras at the courthouse across the street could help them figure out who set the fire. >> we're in the process of evaluating those cameras and video footage from those cameras to determine if there's any evidentiary value. >> and police won't say if they have suspects in custody at this point but he they asking for the public's help. if you saw anything suspicious last night, you are asked to call police. in san jose, a warehouse is now reduced to a pile of rubble as investigators try to figure out the cause of a fast moving fire there. dozens of firefighters worked for hours to put out that fire on saturday afternoon near the

san francisco. we can see ta nice, mild day today. it will feel like fall in a couple of days. expect plenty of runners and street closures in san francisco today. the bridge to bridge run will begin at 9:00 this morning at the ferry building. the race route goes up the embarcadero to ft. mason and to crissy field. for a full list of street closures if case you want to cheer people on or you want to avoid it, go to bridge to bridge.com. rob mayeda is here with a look at our forecast that's probably going to be very nice for a run if you get it in early. >> even around san francisco we're going to see temperatures warming up quite a bit. 70s and 80s around the peninsula today and for places that don't have air conditioning, that's going to feel toasty even near the bay. it's cold around santa rosa down to 44 degrees. one of those afternoons where by
later on today you'll add almost 44 degrees to your temperatures in the north bay under the clear skies and the sea breeze is really starting to back off now. look at that into fairfield and livermore. not much happening. we're getting the marine layer getting squished down and temperatures climbing about 5 to 10 degrees warmer than yesterday. still areas of low clouds and thick fog along the coastline. inland spots warming up quickly today. tomorrow should be the hottest day out by the tri-valley and then midweek cooling and then big-time cooling as we approach next weekend. air quality not so good today because of the winds back off and high pressure builds in and acts like a lid on top of the bay area. traps air pollution. we see that in the north bay, east bay and south bay valleys today. spare the air day today and for tomorrow as well. there is lack of weather systems here. high pressure acting like a shield keeping the storm track to the north and under the ridge
we'll see 90s for east bay valleys and around the south bay and as that marine layer continues to get squished down even more tomorrow, should see more 90s and probably close to 100 degrees especially out by livermore, sunol and pleasanton for monday. near 90 in san jose. 80s closer to the water of the inner bay. mid 90s south down toward morgan hill. mid to upper 90s around pleasanton and livermore and numbers even toward oakland should see some 80s today. 70s and 80s around the peninsula and the coast. skies clear. north winds starting to break up the low clouds for the afternoon. 80s and 90s there in the north bay. the tale of two weeks in the weather. hot temperatures inland through tuesday. things start to make a turn for the cooler on wednesday and thursday. then look at friday and saturday. now this is making me think we're actually in fall. you get roller coaster weeks of weather with hot temperatures crashing down into the 70s by next weekend and some models try to toss some mountain showers too. we'll be watching that this time
